PaciPlushie Review and **GIVEAWAY!** (CLOSED)

13 weeks 009 by you.

As you may recall reading in my "Henry Hates His Paci" post a few weeks ago, H has never been too attached to his pacifier. He usually only if he's unsure about a new situation or really tired. I think part of the reason he never really took to one was because he had such a hard time keeping it in his mouth. If he wasn't sucking, it was popping out. So when the people over at PaciPlushies contacted us about reviewing one of their pacifier attachments, I was immediately curious to see if it would help him bond with his binky.

PaciPlushies are little stuffed animals (about five inches long) that attach to your babies binky through a silicon loop. They are the ultimate soother, as they combine "lovey" with "paci". They are offered in a variety of animals (we chose Lovey the Lamb) and are super soft and adorable.

AND guess what?

H actually used the pacifier more with the plushie attached because holding it and propping it up on his arm held it in place! There was even a few times that the paci would plop out and H would put it back in his own mouth, because he was trying to get the actual lamb up to his face.

It was incredibly cute watching Henry hug the lamb, something he doesn't do very easily with his other stuffed animals. I think the way the Plushie falls on their chest encourages babies to touch and hold the soft bodied lovey. The cute little animals are about five inches long, just the right size for a baby and younger toddler. I probably wouldn't put H to bed with the Plushie attached, but that's only because I'm super cautious about anything potentially suffocating him.

Another great thing about the PaciPlushie was that it made finding the pacifier so much easier. I'm sure you've all been there: You're running late for something and suddenly can't find the pacifier ANYWHERE. Or, you get to the restaurant before realizing that you left the paci in the pocket of a sweater you wore the day before. With a larger stuffed animal clipped onto it, it's pretty hard to loose.

I'd imagine that weaning your child from the binky would be easier with a Plushie as well, because you could treat it more like a stuffed animal that can only be snuggled with at night. You could tell your child that they can't take their stuffed animal to school or out and about because it might get dirty or lost.

The other day as I was running late for work, G said, "You need a PaciPlushie for your KEYS!"

My favorite plushie is the panda! We've already gotten Sylvie so much panda themed stuff, that this would fit in perfectly!

I've never entered for a win but how could I pass this by?? They're all so cute but I'd say the lamb or the panda are the cutest.
